Hello and thanks for coming by to see my blog.
We are now back from the UK. I have some photos to share with you from our holiday but I need a little time to sort them all. So this posting shows some photos of Tian'anmen Square and the Temple of Heaven in Beijing. I was there in May for work but managed to squeeze in a night visit to the Square and an early morning visit to the Temple. Since I went last time the Temple of Heaven has been completely renovated and looks brand spanking new! It was finished on May 1. This, of course, is all in honour of the Beijing Olympic Games.
I hope you enjoy the photos and do come back. In two weeks I will post some photos of our trip to the UK.
